that mango lime shampoo is absolute crap that contains plastics petroleum products all sorts of nastiness
the rubbing can backfire... for months it can create a messy knottiness then in just minutes wipe out 3 months progress
in fact just drying your hair normally with a towel can wipe out progress
if you got it knotty from rubbing be happy...but then stop... leave it alone to dread and don'[;t mess with it or you can wipe out all the progress you made
but also the back normally dreads 1st
your hairs a bit short to really dread well its going to need months of growth
you can wear caps but the more you do the slower the progress (or maybe none)
we do not recommend the bs/acv anymore! its way too harsh and long term use can seriously weaken the hair
theres way better shampoos and deep cleanse options
i'd leave the knots you got alone and let them tighten up..
how long till they look like dreads well its a lil hard to guess in your hair because its so short a year till mature is typical sometimes a good bit more but you'll get comments on your dreads before that ..its going to be awhile though..
id take biotin to speed up the growth
